Hi,

I tried searching within the FAQ section and could not find the answer.

I have a couple Affinity Programs on different devices.  My question is, if I were to buy multiple Brush products (such as Smoke & Cloud, Blast Powder, 102 Lightning, etc.) or other products - can that be used on all affinity programs I have on different devices, or is it per affinity program?  If that question does not make sense, what I'm trying to ask is - is it a one-time purchase for all of my Affinity programs, even on different devices?

I hope you understand my questions.  Let me know at your earliest convenience. 

 

Thank you!
Dalton

Your brushes should be usable (with a single purchase) on any of your devices or Affinity programs, except that:

  • Vector brushes are only usable in Designer (or the Designer Persona of Publisher), not Photo; and
  • There's at least one brush pack I've seen that is specific to the iPad versions of the Affinity applications, and won't work right on the desktop versions.

Walt, thank you for chiming in.  I am glad to hear it is a one-time fee. 

I was looking at the website and it says those brushes I mentioned is compatible with Designer AND Photo.  Can you confirm it actually does not work in Photo? Just wanted to clarify on that.

For example, see Blast Powder brush product screenshot - clearly indicates it is compatible with Photo.  Let me know.  Thanks Walt!

If they say they're compatible with Photo, then they must be raster brushes, rather than vector.
